    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job role is very flexible and there are a lot of opportunities for learning. Some European travel is involved which is good.

    Cons

    Sometimes have to work long hours and a lot of travelling can be a little tiring, especially five days a week constantly.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I can think of to give to management is to make sure that employees are happy with the work that they are doing

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Despite all the adverse media comment, I remain optimistic that there still are excellent people in IBM doing amazingly innovative things for their clients, and if you;re lucky enough to pitch up in the right 'neighborhood' then you can have a bundle of fun.

    Cons

    It was getting much harder year by year to find those neat neighborhoods. What was once a globally supportive team culture was dying on its feet.

    Advice to Management

    Simple, return to the IBM Principles.
